How to rebuild ancient Rome with Lego bricks: here the Forum Traiani. Last year we saw a fraction of it, new bricks and Roman minifigs are now added. To build the entire Forum could be required a lot of more bricks. But for now enjoy it.

Lucca C&G 2016: Lego [part08]

Another constant of Lucca C&G are Lego bricks. They are very popular nowadays. Here some builders bring their enormous creations.




Look at Scooby Doo and dinosaurs that follow chicken minifigs. They are small in the photo but you can see them.

This year was the turn for something WWII themed. Lego don’t produce them but there are some WWII models and minifigs in Lego world built by people who want to add a bit of history and war in this world. Think about to play with minifigs instead of miniatures: you can destroy and rebuilding things…

Comic conventions are the reign of gadgets more than the reign of comics. Here some statuettes and gadgets that I saw around. And with a large participation of Funkyo puppets, the most popular gadget of these years. There is so many stuff that your head spin.

I like this kind of statuettes. You can find around a lot of models at very high prices. It is another world as miniature world, with its sculptors and people involved. I don’t know it deeply but I like this stuff. Even because I like female figures, obviously. However I am more inclined to buy 1/6 military figures than these ones. Is war more interesting than females?

Lucca C&G 2016: Gundam [part05]

Gundam is not a Japanese giant robot, it is an universe. Gunpla is a big business too. I still read new Gundam manga and new Gundam anime. But I don’t build more Gundam models because I don’t know where to put them in my house. However they are so beautiful. Some examples here took around the convention.

Lucca C&G 2016: Go Nagai [part04]

Go Nagai work is still popular not only here in Italy. A lot of new models of the same giant robots are produced. And some are reshuffled versions. I can’t count how many Mazinga variations are around.
At the end even an Italian proposal of a giant robot inspired by Japanese anime and manga.

We are inside a large area called Miniature Island, a place for playing with miniatures and learn how to paint them. It is a large area but only a little portion of what Games pavilion is and nothing compared to the entire Lucca Comics & Games.

Here a picture with the best of Italian wargame rules writers: (left to right) Torriani, Sartori, Cavatore, Sfiligoi.










Not to forgot other pillars of Miniature Island as our painter crew, Clan Conan chaps, and all other people involved in the area. We are all beautiful and dedicated people.
